Oh My! This is dangerously delicious. Jim and I want more, but I’d become ill from the sugar overload. Jim had 3 bowls. This will be my go to recipe from now on. This was very easy to make. I baked it in a cast iron skillet

This is the baby of a larger clematis; (I took a cutting from my favorite one) this one is at a different location on the property and bursting; the mother plant has more shade, is blooming and getting ready to burst
I am currently reading this beautiful, hard bound book. The photos of the people are fun to see, the stories are an interesting read, and the recipes are inspiring. I have bookmarked a few recipes that I will be making this summer, and I will come back here and leave my thoughts on them. There is so much to this book, besides recipes, so I am smiling while sharing little bits of it with my husband.
A note to the author: You mentioned on page 68 how world leaders love cheeseburgers. A reporter wrote an article called “Cheeseburger Diplomacy” during the time President Bush was in office. Mrs. Bush had a very specific way she like burgers prepared. You mentioned what made these burgers just right for dining was the fresh-made whole wheat buns. I would have enjoyed seeing a recipe for the fresh made whole wheat buns. A tip for future books, would be to refer to the page number of the cheeseburger recipe. I found it in the index and have bookmarked it for a grilling idea this summer
Jim asked for more of the Brie bites, which I’ve been making this past week by having fun with brie cheese, and a variety of marmalade’s
With the extra Brie cheese, I cut a few wedges and put on cookie sheet near cups. Mixed a bit of pear marmalade with white wine; heated in microwave and poured on top of cheese wedges. Added crushed walnuts on top of wine/pear/cheese wedge. Served with fire roasted Triscuit crackers which was a delicious combo
Southern Living is as always loaded with beautiful photos with fun ideas for decorating – some of the recipes seem to be very involved, but there are many that are appealing enough to want to invest the time.
Today, I made the White chocolate, Peanut, and Caramel Candy cookies on page 117. These took some time but they are chewy and delicious. I froze half the dough balls for later baking. Jim is enjoying them and eating as many as I leave out in sight – that is a compliment because he is so so on cookies. I used Rolos, and believe you can use other candy like snickers, etc.
This is a great way to use up leftover Halloween Candy. Yes, I will make these again. I’m now looking at the White chocolate-dipped oatmeal cranberry cookies on page 148.
The muffin top is crunchy, the inside is soft. The taste is fantastic.
This recipe works wonderfully with blueberries! The house smells delicious. I cannot wait to share these delicious muffins with my family.
I found this recipe in my Taste of Home’s Best Holiday Recipes 2008 edition. The recipe is on page 49, and it calls for raspberries, which I do not have, but I have plenty of blueberries and they work perfectly in this recipe. The recipes in this thick, beautiful magazine have photos that tempt you.
